: : I dont know what your all worrying about if I could find as militant and fanatical a socialist group as your democrats I would have joined straight away.

: It seems that many 'socialists', if I may use that cover-all term, consider any party that isnt following every element of marxism just another rabid right wing pro capitalist party.

: That view might also benefit from a 'reality check', although it is a matter of perspective. For a person who wishes everything to be collectivised, anything less is part of the evil 'right' wing. For a person concerned with individual liberty/property, collectivism is apparent in even very conservative republican policies.

I hope you where talking to the DR in General Gee because I think marxism isnt of any use apart from academic debate, it's just that the NRA thought that Democrats where such militant socialists, which they obviously arent, and I thought I'd laugh out loud.
